TI Smart Phone Interaction with Registered Displays
A1 Daniel G. Jackson,

K1 display registration
K1 smart phone interaction
AB Display registration allows the composition of a camera-equipped smart phone and a public display. By tracking dynamic markers on a public display, researchers can compute the mapping between the pixels on the smart phone's screen and those on the display. Display registration allows interaction through the smart phone image, facilitating both conventional direct-manipulation interaction techniques and the use of the smart phone as a tangible tool. This article describes the theory and practice of display registration with smart phones, findings in initial user studies, and the opportunities for developing markerless display registration schemes.

K1 indoor positioning

K1 navigation system
K1 digital maps
K1 location awareness
K1 fiduciary markers
K1 static
K1 mobile
AB This low-cost indoor navigation system runs on off-the-shelf camera phones. More than 2,000 users at four different large-scale events have already used it. The system uses built-in cameras to determine user location in real time by detecting unobtrusive fiduciary markers. The required infrastructure is limited to paper markers and static digital maps, and common devices are used, facilitating quick deployment in new environments. The authors have studied the application quantitatively in a controlled environment and qualitatively during deployment at four large international events. According to test users, marker-based navigation is easier to use than conventional mobile digital maps. Moreover, the users' location awareness in navigation tasks improved. Experiences drawn from questionnaires, usage log data, and user interviews further highlight the benefits of this approach.

K1 smart phones
K1 security
K1 smart phone security
AB Smart phones pose new challenges to usable security. Current means of specifying security policies or preferences for resource sharing are either woefully inadequate or too hard to use. This article presents a policy model approach toward usable security for smart phones. In particular, the approach adopts a semantic-based policy representation to help users' understanding of security policies and to better reflect what users really want. Furthermore, given the special nature of smart phones' usage, social awareness plays an important role. In this regard, the authors present propose a socially-aware policy reasoning model based on the results of a user study.

AB Emerging rich wireless networking modalities facilitate the development of new intelligent, innovative services on smart phones. The authors propose a ubiquitous phone (UbiPhone) system that demonstrates innovative context-aware human-centric phone services, which could become available on smart phones. UbiPhone's features include UbiCall, AnyCall, and an emergency contact service. The authors have implemented a UbiPhone prototype on a smart phone with real context sources to demonstrate the system's feasibility.

Breathing visualizations and cognitive reappraisal cues appeared on the cell phone when a wireless ECG detected deviations from an individuals' baseline heart rate variability. Reactions from participants validated this concept and highlighted the need for a broader array of therapies and applications that could be shared within relationships and communities.

TI OpenTag: Privacy Protection for RFID

K1 privacy

K1 RFID
AB Radio frequency identification (RFID) is widely used to identify goods in the supply chain and is increasingly implemented in individual manufactured goods at the retail level. This is a positive trend for pervasive computing; ubiquitous, machine-readable tagging of objects has proven valuable—yet elusive—in the past. With the proliferation of RFID tagged objects, however, comes the possibility of privacy loss. OpenTag was designed to prototype new privacy enhancing algorithms for RFID. Its tags are programmable and work in several modes, including EPC mode, where they're fully compatible with EPCglobal's dominant supply-chain RFID standard. OpenTags can also operate in private mode, frequently altering their IDs so that only authorized readers can predict them, as well as in invisible mode, where they stop responding to readers entirely. Designed for cradle-to-grave object tagging, OpenTags easily and appropriately transition between their various modes.

AB In the possible world of robotic companions, robots are adopted as butlers in our homes, as baby watchers, as friends and in general as life companions. But robots haven't gained majored acceptance. They're not in every home or even in a tiny fraction of homes. However, bold new research is taking shape with early commercial products already hitting the market place. Robots could soon be the "chief appliance" in your home, or the "new interface technology" for smart spaces. This piece reports on the emerging social robots technology and their use as interfaces to smart spaces such as smart homes. A case study on the usability of such robots, conducted in the Ubiquitous Home, in NICT, Japan, is briefly presented.
